WELCOME HOME CARD

Hey Everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations.

Two of my dear friends recently just bought a house and I wanted to say congrats in a hand made card.




You can make this card on your Cricut Explore and I have saved this project in Design Space.


Now as you can see this is the first time I have incorporated sewing into one of my cards. I just received the Brother Sewing Machine for Christmas and I wanted to test it out on this card. So lets start with the base. I cut the base out on GP White Yardstick. I love this paper since it is 110LB it makes the card nice and sturdy. 


Now for the paper choices I used all the paper from the DCWV Violet Leaf paper stack. I wanted to make sure that all the colors coordinated and this was the perfect stack for that. The houses came from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. I did resize them. The scallop border along the bottom came from the Cricut When I Was A Kid Cartridge. Now when you cut the house out you will want to keep the inside of the heart as you will use these in the different houses. Once all of the layers were cut I used my Scotch ATG to adhere the paper to the card. This makes sewing a lot easier. Once that was done I could finally focus on my FIRST sewing project (Don't Judge). I took some Black Thread and using my Brother Sewing Machine stitched a zig zag line along each edge. Once this was done I was able to take some Purple Twine and wrap it in the middle of the top of the card and tie it in a bow off to the side. I took each house and raised them up using 3D Foam Tape. Now when you put the hearts back into the middle of the house NO  3D Foam Tape is needed since the twine is there to support it. Once all the houses were secure I used 3 Sparkle Gems in the center of each house. I was now able to stamp my sentiment. I used the CTMH Banner Wish with CTMH Black Ink and stamped it on one of the dimensional elements that came with my CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. I also raised these up with 3D Foam Tape and finished each side off with Teal Gems.

I hope this card welcomes them into their home and I just love how all the colors singe perfectly together. Make sure to check out all the products below to make your own card.
